Original flavors, nice service, delicious ice cream, very cheap: what more to ask for? The constant queue outside speaks for itself

“Perfect ice cream!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

There are so many ice cream cola es nowadays but only few can make a difference. This place is one of them!! True rich flavors with no artificial ingredients.
Highly recommended!

“The Best Ice Cream on Earth”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

All I can say is thank you to Umberto and his wife, the owners of Dolci Distrazioni, for creating this gift to humanity. This ice cream is beyond good, and it's all natural and made with fresh and local ingredients.
One of the reasons my Italian wife and I planned our holiday again in La Maddalena this year was to have an ice cream here each day. It's true we live in Holland, where it is nearly impossible to find decent ice cream, but I have tried ice creams around the world, from local organic ones in California to some of the best places in Italy, and this tops them all.
Taste the Fior di Latte, just milk, cream and sugar - the base of all the flavors he makes. I thought for sure it must have vanilla or some flavoring in it because it is just so delicious, you can taste the freshness and deliciousness of the milk and cream. Nocciola (Hazelnut) is divine, it's texture and flavor are married perfectly together, the Yogurt is complex and wonderful. Try to come early enough in the season to taste the Peach, he selects peaches from a farm when they are ripe, and once they finish, that's it.
Umberto makes it all himself -- from choosing the milk, cream, fresh fruits and other ingredients (almost all are from local Sardinian farmers), to devising the recipes, to making each batch himself inside the gelateria. He is one of those rare individuals who strives for beauty and perfection in what he does. My hat goes off to him. Make a trip to La Maddalena to experience this. And while you are it, enjoy one of the gorgeous beaches here.
